As you all know, Charlie Wedemeyer, my precious husband was diagnosed with ALS at the age of 30 and told he had about a year to live! Praise God, he lived 34 years!! I am hugely impressed and encouraged by all that The ALS Association Golden West Chapter is doing here in Hawaii!! We understand the ravages of this horrific death sentence!! Back then, there was no support. No one to call! Few Doctors knew anything about ALS! We were blindsided and felt disconnected from life. Our lives were abruptly turned upside down

Why We Need Your Help
Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.
This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease though support is bringing researchers closer to an answer. In the mean time it costs an average of $200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. Help make a difference and donate or join a walk today.
